The price of one rear is equivalent to a new set plus my front getting a weird wear pattern the center is raised the sides are worn just not to happy with these tires

Agreed. They are dual-compound tires where the center strip is a harder rubber for longevity and the sides are softer for better cornering grip.

But you're willing to spend even more to replace a tire that doesn't need replaced?
Can I give you an address to send it to next time you want to throw away good money?

It's just not that good of a tire.. I don't see it at throwing away money I see it as a investment to better my ride..

Fine, send me the front tire and I'll send you 50 pounds of air. If you send $5 I'll throw in 5 pounds of Nitrogen.
